By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 01:04 p.m. HST, Feb 22, 2013

Power was restored to 1,200 customers in Kalihi after they suffered an outage this morning that appears to be weather related.

At about 8 a.m., police received a report of low-hanging wires at the 1500 block of Alewa Drive. The roadway was blocked off as crews from Hawaiian Electric Co. conducted repairs. The road reopened before 1 p.m.

Power was restored at about 10:30 a.m. according to spokesman Darren Pai. 

Crews from Hawaiian Telcom also responded.

Another leaning wooden pole. HECO, use metal poles. Stronger, lasts longer, no termite damage or wood rot. Easier to replace if needed. Less chances of customers without electricity.

HECO and the city should consider putting the wires underground on Alewa Drive. The wind going down the hill side is fierce. This is going to be a recurring problem. A similar incident happened only a couple of months ago.

Are you willing to pay for the cost to have the cables placed underground? If not, then who is or will foot the bill?
